I have ordered several of these plants and have been very pleased with their hardiness and growth. Best of all, the deer have never bothered them and I have herds that pass through our yard. I have one bush planted in front of a window in my DR and I just love to see it in bloom. I have three that are over 4 feet tall now, and I have several that I planted this year and look forward to seeing them grow like the others. Low maintenance, too. I love the color of these. I think the first two years the older bushes were a little slow to grow, but then they shot up. The ones I received this year, I planted in containers so they would continue to grow and I will relocate as soon as the landscaping bed in the front of our home is completed in August.
Beatiful bush to remember our beloved Miss Molly.
Beautiful flower doing well!!!
The plant arrived looking sad with leaves destroyed. I sent pics and was told to plant it and let’s see how it does.
Hello Moira! Sometimes plants just need a little TLC after being shipped and will perk up after a little rest and water. It looks like we extended your warranty and told you to keep us posted as to how your plants did in the coming weeks. If they did not recover, let us know! We'd be happy to replace those plants or issue a refund. Happy gardening!
